It beckons with an aesthetic and a biomorphic shape that have become archetypal: the Eames moulded shell, prized since 1950 for inventing a new paradigm for simple and comfortable, sophisticated and playful seating. In this iteration as the Eames Task Chair, the iconic chair steps up its service as a desk chair that provides effortless functionality and flexibility.
The moulded fibreglass of the original Eames Shell Chair, with all of its expressive surface variation, is once again available thanks to an environmentally friendly process. Along with the moulded plastic version, it offers a customisable aesthetic; colours range from fresh to vintage pigments, available with or without full upholstery, or a seat pad. The Eames Task Chair also offers a choice of bent wire or moulded wood side chair shells. Whatever options you choose, Eames Task Chairs are look-good, feel-good form following function at its agile best.
The Eames Shell Chair was born in 1950, a child of the visionary wife-and-husband design team, Ray and Charles Eames. The boundless creativity of these pioneers of modern furniture helped transform the home and office with form-fitting comfort, flexibility and colour.
A timeless favourite, the Eames Shell Chair’s ongoing iterations affirm the Eamesian philosophy that “Design addresses itself to the need".
